To clarify, this is basically asking if you "have time" to do something, right? It's not asking if you have 'the' time (i.e. what time is it?)?

Exactly.

If you want to ask about what time it is (right now) you'd usually say "Vad är klockan?" (literally "What's the clock?").

One would ask "Har du tiden - Do you have the time" in such cases as someone is waiting for potatoes to cook etc. Time will then be of a specific time in mind.

In this case time is more general.

Maybe it's just Hiberno-English, but "Have you time?" Is valid here.

Duolingo uses American English. Do you have time would be the most common way of saying it.

"Have you time?" is also an accepted translation here, though.

Thanks devalanteriel, that's good to know.

I will add here that for those who want to speak American English, Do you have time is more common.

Why not "Hinner du?" (Do you have enough time?) Is there really a difference between that and "Har du tid"?

Hinner du? is more ’Will you make it in time?’ and har du tid? is ’do you have time?’

i am a bit confused because in english "time" and "the time" are interchangable. couldn't one ask if you had the time for something, as well?

I'd say it's the same in both cases: Har du tid att hjälpa mig? (Do you have time to help me?) and Har du tid för ett samtal? (Do you have the time for a conversation?)

Wouldn't it be 'Do you have any time?'

There's no någon ("any") in the Swedish phrase, though.

True. :/ Sorry.

what would: "do you have the time?" be? as in ; what time is it?

har du tiden or something? or is it an expression you cant use in swedish?

April 14, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/devalanteriel

That would be Vad är klockan?

April 14, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/bynny2015

What about Hur mycket är klockan?

Sure, that also works.
